The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) at CSHL provides an opportunity for undergraduate scientists from around the world to conduct first-rate research. Students learn the scientific process, technical methods, and theoretical principles, and communicate their discoveries to other scientists. Approximately 20 students come to CSHL each summer for the 10-week program, living and working in the exciting Laboratory environment.

By the end of the summer, URP participants have first-hand experience of a career in scientific research.
About Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Founded in 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has shaped contemporary biomedical research and education with programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, and quantitative biology. Home to eight Nobel Prize winners, the private, not-for-profit Laboratory employs 1,100 people including 600 scientists, students, and technicians. The Meetings & Courses Program hosts more than 12,000 scientists from around the world each year on its campuses in Long Island and in Suzhou, China. The Laboratory's education arm also includes an academic publishing house, a graduate school, and programs for middle and high school students and teachers.
About the internship
All URP students undertake an original research project, mentored by one of CSHL's outstanding research faculty. Students have access to the Lab's state-of-the-art research facilities, including extensive resources for genomics and microscopy. At the end of the program, students write a scientific manuscript about their summer work. Some of these become part of peer-reviewed scientific publications. Research at CSHL focuses on:

1. Molecular Biology & Cancer
2. Genetics & Genomics
3. Neuroscience
4. Plant Biology
5. Quantitative Biology

In addition to doing research in the lab, URP participants attend a series of specially designed workshops, seminars, and collegial events. Workshops focus on learning particular skills, such as Python programming, while seminars cover research topics, responsible conduct of research, and career development. At the URP Symposium at the end of each summer, students present their research to the entire CSHL community.

Save yourself from fraud!

If an employer asks you to pay any security deposit, registration fee, laptop fee, etc., do not pay and notify us immediately. Remember, Internshala doesn't charge a fee from the students to apply to a job or an internship & we don't allow other companies to do so either.
